Dual Monitors, and a TV??

post #1 of 2
Thread Starter 
Hey guys, got whats probably a fairly easy question, however, iv never really worried about video cards before or anything where i only had a single monitor, but here goes.

Im looking for the Best and least expensive way to run my 2 monitors at 1680x1050, and my TV. what i would like to have set-up is that the desktop would extend across all of them, just like having three monitors.

for the time being i have a dvi splitter and then monitor 2 and the tv sharing a output on my current video card, so they both have the same screen.

do i need to have dual video cards, or would 1 video card with 3 outputs do? or would a single video card allow me to use the outputs on my motherboard aswell as the ones on the card at the same time?

thanks in advance.

At college I've got a palit 512mb 8400gs running in my personal comp. and i got 2 moniters running from its 2 ports but it also allows for a tv to be added because it had a hdmi port on it to, you got a vga a dvi and a hdmi, runs cool at only 30oc dual screenning and folding. and was summing insane like £23
